A New Year…

September 4th, 2007 · 1 Comment

It’s amazing what a difference a year makes. Last year at this time, I was three hours into the first day of MBET. Today, I am three hours into my first “paid” week as an entrepreneur, as President and CEO of HealthSpoke. I have the pieces in place and now it’s time to make it happen.

My year in MBET really helped me to prepare for being an entrepreneur. I had visions of starting my own company previously, but MBET put me way further ahead than I would of been had I started out on my own. So it was definitely a year well-spent!

On the first day last year, we had a panel-discussion with some of the former students and MBET advisory board members. This year, I have been invited back to be a part of the panel at dinner tomorrow night. I am looking forward to meeting some of the new students and sharing some of my experiences with them. Hopefully I will be able to help some of this year’s students get the most they can out of their short time in MBET. I’m also looking forward to catching up with some of the faculty and advisory board members! Should be a good time! Plus, free food is always nice…
